Update on Harley

February 24th, 2004, 09:25 AM
I wanted to thank everyone for all of their heartfelt concern for Harley. It has taken me awhile to post this message. Harley died on January 5th. He was 15 years old and a gentleman to the end.

I had a horrible experience with the vets in NYC. I went to 5 different vets. The ASPCA (who I usually support for their efforts) were very neglegent. I left numerous messages that Harley had diarrhea like tap water and they NEVER (to this day) have returned my call. I did find a vet who was wonderful. However, it was too late. Harley stopped eating and it was time to put an end to his suffering. The good news; Harley and I spent so much quality time together in the end. He would snuggle up to me for hours at a time and in the end he layed with me and his sisters until it was time to lay to rest. He is missed very much!!! Thank you!

I just noticed I placed this in the wrong area of the message board. I followed the link I had from when I posted a couple of months ago when seeking help. Sorry.

Aww....I missed Harley's story when you first posted, but I am very sorry for your loss. I think we all know how hard it is to lose a beloved pet. :(

He was lovely...look at that tuxedo! And yes, he was a lucky cat to have you.
